Local area weather forecast:

Besides spectacular vistas, the area also offers a range of activities. Numerous rights of way traverse the area including national trails such as the Wye Valley Walk (which Foy Church is a short detour from). Holiday accommodation, picnic and camp sites are also close by, offering the possibility of both short and long visits. Other activities include fishing, golfing, cycling, horse riding, bird watching, church trails, kayaking and canoeing.

The St. Mary's bike ride is a particularly good way to enjoy the picturesque Wye valley, taking you through four villages and passing three churches. The ride is approximately 9.4 miles long and takes between 50 minutes and 1 hour 10 minutes to complete. Since the ride loops around the valley, day visitors can both start and finish in Foy Church's car park. The route can be displayed on the interactive local area map below by clicking the blue "Show / hide - St. Mary's bike ride" button at the base of the map.

Anyone is welcome to use the Church car park for local activities, but we would ask you to consider making a donation in the offertory box inside the Nave.
